Biography

THE SHOCK! is melodic flair and sense of style, a sonic majesty of guitars and analogue synths driven by sexy basslines and a tight, solid post-punk battery. They have delivered a series of legendary concerts since 2007 with their sharp, feisty, dogged and dark blend of post-punk, noise rock and hypnotic melodies that draw on the Velvet Underground, Joy Division and Depeche Mode. Now they are rising slowly but surely toward the surface without attracting all the attention they actually deserve.
 
 
“THE SHOCK! may prove to be an incredibly fitting band name, because one day very soon they will suddenly become a band everyone is talking about. THE SHOCK! has played around with the old Manchester recipe to success and made their own sound. Now they are rising slowly but surely toward the top without attracting all the attention they actually deserve”.            
 - Numusic festival 09

“I have not seen such a great quintet in a long time, they rise like a flood, they own the stage they play, they scoop the ears they hit with their sharp blend of post-punk, noise rock and hypnotic melodies. I'm glad I live in same time as this band”. - Tore Renberg (author, screenwriter)
